We did it!

“This is the best feeling in my life,” right fielder Sam Little said on Monday night. “No doubt.”

The over 600 people who witnessed his game-tying home run and heard the sound it made would understand his sentiment. Down 2-0 in the bottom of the ninth, the Cowboys had been flummoxed all night by the Bakersfield pitcher and manager Edison Alvarez. The veteran’s cutters, sliders, and change-ups frustrated Alpine batters, who only had two hits in the first eight innings of game 2 of the Pecos League Championship Series. He also frustrated fans by talking to the umpires more than a regular player would ever be allowed, all while sporting bright blue hair to match his uniform.
